|Barlow , Hollywood Cemetery is a half day at the least trip. Get a good map at the visitors center . It will cost you a buck or so . It shows you were the famous are buried. I had a list the last time I was there .
Two US and one Confederate president . Numerous Generals. Rev War and Colonial leaders, Authors , children and wives of leaders and several just interesting headstones , memorials are there to see.
There is also a huge pyramid to honor the Confederate dead of Gettysburg who are buried all around the pyramid. Pickett and his wife are there with them.
A very sad headstone is the one for Longstreets children. Also the grave of Pegram who was married and buried in a short few weeks . His brother Willie is buried next to him.
Jefferson Davis' grave with is statue is facing a huge headstone with the name Grant on it . NOT THE Grant but still interesting .
The view of the river there is also interesting. A place in Richmond not to miss .
